Wine festival harvest parade
Stellenbosch Wine Festival Harvest Parade – marching bands, minstrels, majorettes, and a flotilla of decorated trucks. Sat 28, 09h00. Free.
The oak-lined streets of Stellenbosch will be invaded by a colourful community of winemaking charismatics on uniquely adorned ‘chariots’ on Saturday, January 28.
This proud Stellenbosch procession traditionally includes merry marching bands, inimitable Cape minstrels, drum majorettes and – the highlight of this harvest high jinks – a flotilla of bold and beautifully decorated tractors, trailer and trucks. The troupe represents participating wineries and will meander its way through the streets to bring unique Stellenbosch gees (spirit) to the season’s toil.
The Stellenbosch Harvest Parade, presented in conjunction with the Stellenbosch Municipality, gets underway on 28 January from 09h00. It will be followed by a harvest blessing ceremony at the town hall in Plein Street at 10h00.
